Volunteer Opportunities



Thank you for viewing the volunteer opportunities available through the Westonka Horticultural Society. It is the volunteer who provides the ground work to build the Westonka Horticultural Society into a viable community organization. We appreciate your consideration to offer your time and talent.

Volunteers need not be gardeners, just a passion to help. Many of these positions can be a team effort. If you have a friend you would like to work with or if you wish to be matched with another volunteer for a project, please contact us. Most volunteer positions are short-term with a few long-term commitments.
